One present and two former Chairmen of Governors presided over the opening of the new Ashton Building at The Judd School. The Master and present Chairman of Governors, James Leahy, welcomed Hubert Ashton under whose chairmanship much of the fundraising and development work had taken place. The Ashton Building houses a new dining hall and biology department above. Hubert Ashton's predecessor as chairman, Professor Colin Seymour-Ure, was also present standing next to Beadle Mervyn Bassett. The retiring Headmaster, Robert Masters and Annabelle Baird (ex-Judd Governor and Master elect) complete the line up in the photograph.
